Late Friday night Marvel Entertainment released a clip featuring a full scene from episode 1 of Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If you bailed on the series after the initial glitter of the Marvel Comics universe drama started to fizzle mid-season, you may have at least one good reason to give the series another try. Agent Coulson’s team returns, this time joined by genre fave Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Battlestar Galactica, The X-Files, Veronica Mars, Burn Notice).
Although Marvel owns the cinematic superhero universe, it takes a backseat in TV land. The DC Comics universe counterpart Arrow on the CW Network firmly established audiences would happily accept a series full of superheroes and supervillains. With Arrow competing for viewers again this season, Warner Bros. is also adding The Flash, which looks to be great. Will S.H.I.E.L.D. finally embrace the key element of the genre it represents?
Check out this first look of a scene from Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
